Item is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Item is not new or in "new" condition.
Binding age worn, spine cloth splitting along joints and chipped at spine ends, front hinge neatly reinforced in past with linen tape, yet still remains overall attractive as an object.
Text block paper is quite clean, internally well preserved, little staining or soiling, square and tight, any flaws of a minor type unworthy of specific mention.
Still attractive on the shelf. Item displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
